You can use bigger hooks or bigger size wire of hooks by carefully taking a file and make the space for the wire bigger. You must also make the space for the hook eye bigger (I use a Dremel tool to do this). But, when you use the hooks that the mold calls for ; you may have a lot of "flash" or excess lead around the eye and shank of the hook. I customize my molds all the time but find it easier to use different molds for different styles of hooks. It costs more but makes cleaning up the jigs easier to paint.
